Fic Master Post

Edited/updated December 12/2012

Now I know why fandom calls them 'plot bunnies' - they breed and multiply when you're not looking. So here's a stuck post to keep track of what I'm doing and what stage they're at. All links are to AO3.

Draft Stage

Untitled fill for the Tales From Liberty Avenue fic challenge (Tales of: the Hustler)

Untitled University profs!AU for Young Avengers. Shaping up to be ten chapters. 

The Holmes Contingency: A co-authored Sherlock/Criminal Minds/CM: Suspect Behaviour crossover.

Outline/Research Stage

  • Under the Sign of the Swan: Queer as Folk (US) Regency-era AU.

    1810, London. King George III is going mad. His son, poised to become the new regent, is manifestly unprepared to take the throne. Upper-class society is ruled by the great families of the Haut Ton, and the barriers to entry are high. Fortunes are won at the betting tables, and traded at the altar. And 'coming out' meant something entirely different.

    Mr. Brian Kinney, wealthy son of an Irish tradesman, has built himself the kind of life of which as a child he could only dream. Money, power, privilege; he has won it all, in spite of the clucking old biddies of the Ton, and his 'understanding' with the widowed Lady Peterson is the perfect cover for the illegal activities with which he truly fills his nights. But one encounter with his lady's new protege is about to change everything...

  • Queer as Folk / Blood Ties crossover, based on Kyle Schmid's appearance in QAF episode 508.

  • "The Five Love Languages of Brian Kinney"

  • Two prospective sequels to The Holmes Contingency - no titles as of yet, just basic notes.

AO3 benefit fiction auction - bid on me!

For those who haven't heard yet, a pile of fanfiction authors have put ourselves up for auction, all the money going directly to the OTW to support the Archive of Our Own (and other fandom projects).

It works like so: you take a look through the list of participating authors and their relevant fandoms. You place a bid on an author (or multiple authors!) that you like. When the auction closes, you send the money promised for your winning bid straight to the OTW, who run the Archive. (no money ever goes through a third party!) You send proof of payment to your author, and begin discussing prompts.

I am up for auction! Make me your writer-puppet!

Information on the auction in general can be found here (bidding is open until April 25th).

And my bidding page is here! I'm offering a 2000-word (minimum) fic, on a prompt of your choice.

(I will write in multiple fandoms, including YA, Criminal MInds, Queer as Folk, Shelter, crossovers are encouraged, as are historical AUs!

My hard limits/will-nots: Incest, A/B/O, mpreg, non-con, bodily fluids play, a couple of others. See my bid page for details.)

Come and support the AO3!

Oh my gooooood, you guyz. It's done. (This story, anyway). I have a bunch of notes and started stories also set in this universe, but Teddy's story is signed, sealed and delivered with a bow. There's a full chapter (May) and a Coda in this update, so do click through.

Thank you so much to everyone who's been reading, kudo-ing and commenting along the way. You've made this so much fun! Thank you also to my betas, feebleapb and xandertheundead, who rock my world.

The tenure-track teaching job is the rarest of holy grails for a young academic, but getting hired may have been the easy part.

These things he can be sure of: his students are going to drive him crazy, the bureaucracy is driving him to drink, and Bill Kaplan in the office down the hall is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Too bad Billy already has a boyfriend.

All Teddy wants is to survive his first year.

I committed a thing.

Ages and ages ago, DangerousCommieSubversive over on the AO3 prompted me for Profs!AU, asking: " Is it bad that next I want to read about them getting busy while having a serious academic discussion? Because that would be super hot."

I started this in response, poked at it a bit, and then set it aside until I could make it all gel.

While this is set (nebulously) in the Profs!AU universe, the only thing you need to know is that Billy and Teddy are college professors, both teaching history. The rest is pretty much PWP, and egregious abuse of critical theory.

And footnotes.

I learned how to do clickable footnotes at AO3. Fear me.


Strange Miracle

Young Avengers, no powers (Profs!AU)

3,500 words

Billy/Teddy (Explicit, PWP, no other warnings apply. Toppy!Billy)

Teddy’s hand was back on Billy’s leg, and slowly working its way up his thigh. Teddy shifted a little where he sat, but the expression on his face was so totally innocent that Billy almost believed it. Teddy moistened his lips and his gaze flickered down to Billy’s mouth for a second before he answered. “Aren’t you veering into lit-crit just a tad?” he asked, one eyebrow up.

“It’s – uh-“ Teddy’s hand had reached Billy’s hip, and his fingertips pressed gently into the curve of his ass. “It is a literary work,” Billy pointed out, fighting to keep from grinning. If this was how Teddy was going to play it, Billy wasn’t going to be the one to crack first.

When Sam spoke again, it was with a finger crooked over his chin and a pensive expression. “Honest question time, Ted, and I can’t tell you why I’m asking. Technically, even I don’t know about this. But is there anyone who might have it out for you?”
